Everything is just so up in the air. If I knew for sure, Origin or Destination, so much would fall into place.

IF BIoware knows at least that much bare info for remaining servers that are on-the-cusp, releasing that info would calm down lots of anxious players right now.

Sure would be appreciated. Overall, the transfer process has been fantastic, but not knowing and possibly being at the back of the line with no knowledge to prepare is extremely stressful.
I hear ya. I'm also on Krayt Dragon. My guild has 30-40 people on at prime time and we voted to stay on the server even if it's an origin server. Hopefully they're going to keep it open (and they haven't indicated that they'll close servers after the free transfer period).

I get the feeling that the remaining 20 East Coast servers are going to be fed into Krayt Dragon and The Shadowlands (Krayt Dragon according to the server choice screen in SWTOR, Shadowlands according to TORStatus - although neither of those methods takes into account active subs). Keep your fingers crossed

Edit: didn't know half the EC PVE servers were as of yet unassigned - thought there were just a handful left and that only Krayt Dragon or The Shadowlands would be Destination Servers.

Just updated my original post to include some latency numbers. Not happy about being on a west coast server and having an east coast server offered as the destination server.

We understand your passion and desire for a transfer, but know that we are taking many factors into account, including making sure that servers are stable.
That's unacceptable! No one stops, no one sleeps until each and every server is either marked for transfer or full to the brim. No soup for you until it's done!!



Good job on the transfers so far - worth the wait for those lucky enough these first two days from most indications. Fingers crossed for the rest of us tomorrow!

Agreed but when that goes live I am going to have to pay for those transfers... I shouldn't have to... Bioware made a bad decision opening so may servers... I shouldnt have to pay to get all my toons on one server because of that mistake.

They've got 9 NA destination servers now, and 9 europe, and 3 asian, so 21 total.

Finally got on new populated server and had a blast already, thanks for the transfers altough you sure did took your time
Also some people are giving flack to devs from lack of communication, i think it's been 10 times better after Reid's departure. So don't be too harsh or you will scare them away :P

IReally? They said they would accommodate all server requirements: West coast to West cost, East to East, PvP to PvP, RP-PvP to RP- PvP etc.

Surely that must be some sort of mistake. Why would they pick an east coast server as a destination when there are west coast options?

I really hope they tested and thought out all of the potential issues here. There's going to be major backlash if they didn't stress test how high they can increase the pop cap and then have to transfer people off of the destinations. That'd piss off both the people who transferred and the people who were lucky enough to be on a destination.
